How to get there
Baz Bus to Botriver - they pick up.
In the heart of Hermanus
Year after year, Hermanus Backpackers just gets better and better. Dunno what their secret is, but no matter how busy they are Braam, Hayley and their staff still make you feel like you’re the most important person there.
Close to town, the sea and the cliff paths, this is a well run, lively and fun backpackers. Meet the gang in the funky bar, play a free game of pool, watch DSTV or relax in the lovely garden. If you need some down time, hang in the chill lounge, float in the swimming pool or meditate at the fire pit. If you’d rather go big, check out their amazing deal on shark cage diving. Or grab a special deal and quad bike, horse ride, paraglide and wine taste…
From July to December the bay is whale-filled. Watch them from the cliffs, from a boat or (eeek) from a (little) sea kayak in the marine reserve.
Fuel up for the day, or recharge depleted reserves, at their fab new cafe - it serves great breakfasts and evening meals that rival their totally delish and famous braais.
